A grand scale hand carved and polished onyx obelisk from Italy c.1885. The gorgeous translucent quality of the onyx mineral makes this obelisk especially appealing for display upon a table top either by itself or as part of a larger collection. The use of an obelisk dates back to the Egyptian Pharaohnic period when obelisks were erected in the centre of a temple complex. Please use the zoom feature offered on our website to see the lovely details of this obelisk. The edges and the top point are gently rounded reflecting nthe hand made nature of this piece as a machined piece of stone has tight sharp edges that resist the passage of time. The natural occlusions seen in onyx combined with the polished surface give the most intriguing reflections at all times of the day and night. Whether seen in natiral light or illuminated by fire, candle or artificial light the clean and simple lines of this timeless shape will be a focal point in any interior.
